Traits are special abilities granted at certain levels of a Specialization. Most Specialization levels grant increases in Stats, but every 4 levels gives a different ability with some relation to the Specialization.

The Traits do not give any Stat increases, even the ones which grant an ability which usually would come from Stat increases (like extra Carry).

At level 32 (the max) each Specialization has a Capstone Trait which, in theory, gives an better ability. Examples of the Capstone Trait include free Chariot Travel and valuable resources being generated offline.
